Frank Ray came to music through an interesting route. The San Antonio native spent over a decade as a police officer, protecting and serving Texans, but chose to leave the force to pursue music full time. In the past year, since the release of his debut EP, he's had two singles go to #1 on the Texas Country Charts, has been featured in both Rolling Stone and The Boot, and is ready to make a play for the national charts with his latest single, 'Tequila Mockingbird.' For more about Frank Ray, visit his website! His debut EP Different Kind of Country, and his single 'Tequila Mockingbird' are both available on iTunes.
